The colors and iridescence on the individual pieces are a hallmark of LickinFlames. The shawl buttons takes several weeks to dry and then the finishing can take place. When the shawl buttons are removed from the kiln and cooled, each is washed, dried and a double pronged clip is added to finish the piece.
Remember that because of the handmade nature of the brooch, some variations should be expected. The quality is always the same standard that LickinFlames is known for, but some variations in color, design element placement and decoration patterns needs to be allowed. No two are alike of the same item.
